The Ultimate In Versatility of Isolation Platform Design
The new OCTO-Base™ Modular Seismic Isolation System offers a unique octagonal shape to allow for limitless attachment in multiple directions to create isolated equipment mounting in a concise 15” design.
The OCTO-Base™ system utilizes NextGen Ball-N-Cone™ Isolators which dramatically increase displacement capacity, over the original Ball-N-Cone™ utilized by standard ISO-Base™ by up to 70% while nearly eliminating vertical spikes and vibrations due to its smoother rolling design profile. While the original ISO-Base™ had excellent performance in recent large earthquake events, the need became apparent to offer a product with increased displacement and acceleration capability.
The OCTO-Base™ system components can be configured into isolation platforms for protecting rows of multiple cabinets or equipment items, or can be custom configured as a single, stand-alone, machinery or equipment mount.
Each OCTO-Base™ assembly includes a top and bottom platform with (2) NextGen Ball-N-Cone™ Isolators. Octogonal Isolators are connected to one another with customized rails and top plates to accommodate any design layout.
Similar to ISO-Base™, connector lengths are made to fit the width or length of the item being protected.
OCTO-Base™ system components are re-usable and re-configurable, new connector sizes can be easily accommodated.
The open frame design allows for proper air circulation and allows a space for cable management through a raised floor.
The heavy-duty construction of the OCTO-Base™ system dramatically increases the weight load capacity over original ISO-Base™ by approximately two and a half times. This is an important advancement to meet the current trend of heavier server racks and IT components being used in todays’ data center environments.
Just like with ISO-Base™, if all other peripheral systems, such as power, stay up and running, your isolated equipment can and will continue to operate and process data right on through a major earthquake.
